Dr Susan Wagland: What is the best way to treat a broken ankle?
After my PhD I decided to go into clinical trials, where I could use both my science research experience, and my organisational and administrative skills. I am embedded in an academic research environment, where we are testing treatments for musculoskeletal injuries. I love communicating with our recruiting hospitals and our patient participants, and the precision of data collection and analysis. Every trial has different, interesting challenges and our results will directly benefit future NHS patients.
Stuart Faulkner : The never-ending story of a scientist
Variation has always been my mantra – never doing the same things again and again for too long. I love science and all that surrounds it. From discovering how the brain develops in the lab, to how we can work with doctors and industry to help repair parts of the body using stem cells, to how to reach agreement on new ways to bring drugs to patients quicker across the whole of Europe. It has been, and still, is a never-ending story in the world of science.
